  1. Meatbodies – “Tremmors”
    L.A. rocker Chad Ubovich has done time on guitar and bass in Mikal Cronin’s band and on bass with the Ty Segall-affiliated garage rock project FUZZ. He’s now fronting his own band, the marvelously named Meatbodies, and they’re putting out a self-titled LP on In The Red this fall. Lead single “Tremmors” matches straight-up Zeppelin [...]






  2. Connections – “Beat The Sky” Video
    Last month, we premiered “Beat The Sky,” a new track from the prolific Columbus band Connections, who were also one of our best new bands of 2013. Now they’ve shared the new song’s video, which is your typical band-playing-a-show montage that’s elevated by the group’s energetic and earnest punk, and some cool-looking cloud-related effects. Watch [...]






  3. Walt From Lost Is In That Pop Group You’ve Been Hearing On The Radio All Month
    Waaaaaaaaaaaaalt! Turns out Malcolm David Kelly, who played Walt on Lost, is the MK half of the pop duo MKTO alongside Tony Ortiz. Their song “Classic” has been getting major top 40 airplay this summer. It’s the song that compares the object of the singers’ affections to classic pop music and old-school movie pinups — [...]






  4. She Keeps Bees – “Is What It Is” (Feat. Sharon Van Etten) Video
    A month ago, She Keeps Bees shared the affectingly minimal “Is What It Is,” from their upcoming album Eight Houses, featuring Sharon Van Etten on backup vocals. The song seems made for lonely late-night drives, and the font of the title card for its new video, appearing above a car speeding down a darkened highway, [...]






  5. Jessie J, Ariana Grande, & Nicki Minaj – “Bang Bang”
    If you completely forgot about the existence of Jessie J, everyone will understand. The London pop singer hasn’t really made much impact in America since she released the butt-ass awful “Price Tag” more than three years ago. But today, she’s toplining a new song called “Bang Bang” that also features dominant pop queens Ariana Grande [...]






  6. Matthew Dear – “Pawn In Their Game”
    Hohokum is an upcoming PS4 game that partnered with the label Ghostly in order to craft the soundtrack. That soundtrack is available to stream now and features a new song by Matthew Dear titled “Pawn In Their Game,” which fits right in with the game’s bright and playful visuals. You can stream the entire soundtrack [...]






  7. Premature Evaluation: Spoon They Want My Soul
    There’s a moment on Spoon’s new song “Outlier” where Britt Daniel sneaks a sharp splinter of film criticism into one of the tough, terse, personal songs that Spoon is so known for: “I remember when you walked out of Garden State / You had taste, you had taste / You had no time to waste.” [...]






  8. Music Blues – “The Great Depression” Video
    Music Blues is the solo project of Stephen Tanner, bassist for sludge metal stalwarts Harvey Milk. His debut album, Things Haven’t Gone Well — written after the death of a longtime friend, drummer Jerry Fuchs — is coming next month. We’ve already heard first single “91771,” and “The Great Depression” is another slab of ominous [...]






  9. Stream Cold World How The Gods Chill
    The Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania band Cold World have always played a sludgy, stomping, groove-centric form of tough-guy hardcore that’s found small, organic ways to nod to New York rap. But on their new album How The Gods Chill, the band makes that connection way more apparent, soliciting verses from rappers like Kool G Rap, Sean Price, [...]






  10. Tobias Jesso Jr. – “True Love”
    There’s a certain sort of beauty that only manifests out of the static when some melancholy dreamer sets his fragile tenor against a wistful piano figure. Vancouver singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. has that magic in abundant supply. It’s as if he sighs his heartrending nostalgia into existence after poring over old love letters and family [...]
